The Elephants

Well in many places you will find elephant rides, but I truly suggest to avoid riding on them. Riding on elephants harms their back. Riding on elephants is considered against Animal Welfare, still in many places it is encouraged. Rather visit Elephant Hills in Khao Sok where you can enjoy Washing and Rubbing Elephants. A big NO NO to ride an elephant thus preventing animal cruelty. Moreover, do not encourage places or tourist spots where animals are brutally treated. Visit this link to understand better, how the tourist encourage Animal Cruelty At Tourist Destinations.

The lilies cover most part of the lake giving a mind blowing feeling. Do visit the lake if you are true nature lover.
